    My Goodwill Find

    I got this old drawing/architect table at Goodwill today for $30. My Quilt Cut 2 fits on it perfectly, along with space for my rotary cutter and glove. I'm so excited I just wanted to share.

    NICE! Wonder if it will be easier to cut with the tilt; hmm may have to look at one for myself.

    Awesome! We have a goodwill here, but I don't shop there anymore, they keep raising their prices and now they have items that are used priced more then what you could get it at Walmart new.

    I gave one of those away to Goodwill years ago because I no longer needed it for graphic layouts (computers did what I used to do on it). And now that I'm quilting I wish I had it! CONGRATS!

    Good steal! Looks sturdy and level. Perfect for cutting!
